KeymessageUnder non-extreme drought conditions, reduced stem growth is not associated with reserve or hydraulic impairment in beech suffering from long-term decline.AbstractGlobal change is expected to increase the frequency and the intensity of drought events in temperate ecosystems. In some regions, this might be associated with an increase in tree decline. Of the ecophysiological mechanisms that have been proposed to explain tree decline, an impairment of the vascular transport system and/or… CONTINUE READING
